The MOD’s Watchkeeper Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPA S /UAV) – QinetiQ Air Traffic Management Team provides technical advice on the integration of RPAS / UAVs in both segregated and unsegregated airspace and impact on air traffic control
The QinetiQ Air Traffic Management team works closely with Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) to formulate their future aviation strategies and support the full Air Traffic Control system procurement lifecycle. This has notably been demonstrated through work with the Norwegian ANSP, Avinor, helping them determine their future strategy for providing cost-effective air surveillance services in challenging environments; and through work with the MOD for modernising the provision of its terminal air traffic control system services.
Our Air Traffic Management team can offer:
Independent advice covering Air Traffic Management technology, standards and regulation, operations, safety and economic factors;
General programme support to ensure that ATC systems procurement programmes address operational and regulatory requirements, and are compatible with the emerging SESAR environment;
Advice on civil-military aviation interoperability in the Air Traffic Management domain;
Enterprise Architecture ATC solutions enabling customers to visualise and optimise strategies for the procurement of future ATC and ATM infrastructure and the development of the accompanying procedures in a cost effective and timely manner.
